‘1923’ Teaser: Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Are Duttons in First Look at Next ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel Series (Video)

Taylor Sheridan’s second chapter in the Dutton origin story debuts in December


“Yellowstone” Season 5 premiered on Sunday night, but in concert with the new episode of the wildly popular drama series, we got our first look at Taylor Sheridan’s next prequel series “1923.” The teaser trailer for the new show (which you can watch below) offers a first look at Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as Jacob and Cara Dutton, ancestors to Kevin Costner’s John Dutton in the mainline “Yellowstone” series.

“1923” — which premieres Dec. 18 on Paramount+ — is billed as the next chapter in the Dutton origin story and will introduce a new generation of Duttons led by patriarch Jacob (Ford) and matriarch Cara (Mirren). The series will explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.

In addition to Ford and Mirren, “1923” also stars Darren Mann (“Animal Kingdom”), Michelle Randolph (“A Snow White Christmas”), James Badge Dale (“Hightown”), Marley Shelton (“Scream”), Brian Geraghty (“Big Sky”), Aminah Nieves (“Blueberry”) and Jerome Flynn (“Game of Thrones”).

“1923” is Sheridan’s second “Yellowstone” origin story series following “1883,” which launched in 2021 and told the story of how the Duttons came to own the land that would become Yellowstone. That limited series is currently streaming on Paramount+.

While “1923” is a Paramount+ original, the debut episode of the show will air on Paramount Network on Dec. 18 immediately after a new episode of “Yellowstone” to entice viewers to subscribe to the streaming service to keep watching. The second episode will also air on Paramount Network on Jan. 1.

The series will premiere on Monday, December 19th, on Paramount+ in the U.K. and Australia. Premiere dates for other Paramount+ international markets will be announced at a later date.

Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions, “1923” is executive produced by Taylor Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, David Hutkin, Bob Yari and Ben Richardson.
